WEIGHT LOSS - Individual or Group

Did you know that weight loss success is 80% diet and 20% exercise? I am certified by the Commission on Dietetic Registration in Adult Weight Management. Let me help you sort through all the fad diet hype and make sense of what and when to eat.

 

There is so much focus on what NOT to eat, I like to guide you to the foods that are GOOD to eat. My heart is to teach you about the beauty of food and how to eat food that taste delicious that is also nutritious! The word "diet" is a literal four letter word in my book. Who wants to diet the rest of their life? Call today and begin a healthy, balanced relationship with food and lose weight healthfully at the same time!

HEALTHY EATING - Disease Prevention

Sometimes we just need a nutrition checkup. We may have a genetic predisposition that we are concerned about and want to do all we can to prevent the disease. Our foods choices really do maintain our health and prevent disease.

 

If you have heart disease, diabetes, cancer, obesity in your family and you are strongly desiring to prevent this in your future, let's get started today. Your life and health is worth the checkup. Don't wait for a diagnosis to change your eating habits later.

Grocery Store/ Farmers Market Tours

Sometimes shopping can be overwhelming in the grocery store or at the farmer’s market with so many choices. Food labels lurk everywhere making health claims that are false. I can take you for a tour with training on how to navigate the ever-growing big box grocery stores to simplify and streamline this necessity in your life.

 

The farmers market is a great place to get locally grown produce, meat, eggs, honey, cheeses, baked goods, coffee, teas, etc. I would love to take you to our local farmer’s market here in Peachtree City and introduce you to some amazing, hardworking farmers and ranchers and teach you about the benefits of shopping here locally.

NUTRITION SEMINARS - Community and Corporate

I love to teach seminars on overall healthy eating, disease prevention, our food supply and agriculture changes that affect it, making sense of food labels, organic and genetically modified foods, maternal nutrition for mom and baby (as well as when breastfeeding), growing a community garden at your church, home school or job site.

Pantry Makeovers

I have found it is extremely helpful for clients to have me meet them in their home and help go through their pantry and refrigerator/freezer. It is one thing to learn what you need to about food changes, and this can dramatically accelerate the process of change!

ABOUT ME:

I am an experienced, Registered and Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist based in Peachtree City, Georgia. I can help you tackle your diet issues and present realistic solutions to achieve your goals.  

 

I graduated with an honors degree in Food and Nutrition, with a minor in Biology in 1998 from Texas State University.  Upon completion of the dietetic internship and graduate work, I passed the national exam with the Commission of Dietetic Registry in 2000.  My experience includes medical nutrition therapy counseling for individuals, families, and teaching workshops/seminars for a private practice MD, nursing home clinical nutrition consultation, and for the community outreach education department of Mountain States Health Alliance in Johnson City, Tennessee.

 

While taking time off to raise our three young children, I have had the humbling experience of feeding picky eaters, having a child with food sensitivities and of course just real life feeding issues that come along with children.  Undoubtedly, I now have an arsenal of tools handy that comes with the hands-on experience of parenting.

 

During this time of raising children, I have also taught nutrition classes at the Healing Bridge Clinic in Peachtree City for local Fayette, Coweta and Fulton residents without health insurance.  I have also started a garden at our church (with the help of an army of volunteers and Eagle Scouts) that grows fresh, organic fruits and vegetables for local area food banks.

 

I set up a private nutrition practice to share my knowledge and love for nutrition with the Fayette community and surrounding counties. My passion is for people first, disease prevention, disease management (medical nutrition therapy), weight loss and whole food nutrition.  When not working, you can find me enjoying our family, good friends, a good book, gardening or dancing.
